of this country to elect an african-american, the 44th president of the united states of america. reverend wheeler mentioned the inauguration. last year's election. on the heels of that victory over a year ago there were some who suggested that somehow we entered into a post-racial america. all those problems would be solved. there are those who argue that because i had spoke of a need for unity in this country that our nation was somehow entering into a period of post-partisanship. that didn't work out so well. there was a hope shared by many that life would be better from the moment that i swore that oath. of course, as we meet here today one year later we know the promise of that moment has not yet been fully fulfilled. because of an era of greed and irresponsibility that sewed the seeds of its own demise because of persistent economic troubles unaddressed through the generations. because of a banking crisis that brought the financial system to the brink of catastrophe, we are being tested in our own lives and as a nation as few have been tested before. unemployment is at its highest level in m

that they are trying to use the bully pull pit of america to force the other countries into forcing the airlines into having more enhanced screenings. the pilot authority, as you said, is going to be highly discretionary as to what goes on in the cabin. and of course, the obama administration must have known about all of these and they are trying to keep people calm. and then the response and what are you hearing, if anything, about the handling and the timing? >> look, these changes wouldn't have gone into ee fikt without the white house saying putting them in effect. this hases to do with security, no question about that they didn't react quick enough. at this point, i think we've seen the president come up, he's used very strong language. and mark and lynn, thank you very much. increasingly there is a concern for the united states and the west. >>> the u.s. government closed the embassy siting the possibility of terrorist violence. president obama is insistent for homeland security and counterterrorism. >> i spoke with the ambassador and both this morning as well as last night, there are indi

america which was the left leaning talk radio network went off the air and filed for bankruptcy and said it couldn't keep in operations. i want your sense when you travel we have talked on this program about rush or bill or what conservatives are saying on the radio, is this a problem for the left in that the right just dominates. i was in a cab in new york city and the cab driver said he was a democrat and spends 14 hours a day in the car and only people he can listen to are people he disagrees with. does the left have a problem here? >> john, the truth is that this is another loss for americans who like to hear both sides and air america really provided some important coverage over the last couple of years and gave us a lot of great spokespeople and some of them are now on tv and one is in the united states senate. so it's a loss but i do believe that liberals and progressives will find other channels and other ways to get their information and of course the internet, that great tool that my ex-boss inspired the creation of will also give us something to shout about in the future. >> y

a long answer and i'll try to make it short. i think america is safer since 9/11, but we're certainly not safe. we have a long way to go, but i think we've made significant progress. i think that we've shown that al qaeda can land most anywhere. where there's fertile ground, they're going to breed. now, the latest, of course, is yemen, where there certainly is a significant challenge. al qaeda continues to inhibit areas along the afghan/pakistan border which, again, argues for success in afghanistan. but, i think that we have to continue our emphasis and our focus on the fact that this challenge is not going away any time soon. >> senator lieberman, to that point, you're the chairman of the homeland security committee, as calla adapts its tactics, have the united states kept up? are we ahead of them, if you will, not only improving airport security but looking overseas and our intelligence gathering, are we still ahead of the game? >> we're ahead of the game, but this is a war and there are times when i think because it is such an unconventional war that people in our country may forg

ads. listen to this. >> president obama is leading an extreme left-wing crew side to bankrupt america. i stand in his way every day. >> you stood by your republican friend during the 2008 financial campaign. do you believe he is leading the way to bankrupt america? >> john mccain and i disagree sometimes, and that's one of the cases. i think the president understands the importance of bringing our government back into balance. he came in in a most difficult economic time, inherenting a national debt that doubled in the preceding eight years. i think you are going to hear from the president in the state of a union maybe earlier about tough medicine for our economy. we need it and i hope there will be bipartisan support in congress for doing that. as our economy begins to grow again, we are not going to get to real growth until we can assure the rest of the world that we can pay our bills, and right now we are just adding to our debt. >> senator mccain, many consider you the leader of the republican party. and there is a man that caused quite a stir this week. he has been criticized you

community in america is going to object in the same way that new york finally did to these people being put on trial in the united states and civilian courts. >> if you ask the white house about this at high levels they say it's not just the president or attorney general holder. attorney general petraeus says he believes a federal trial at the public courthouse is the way to do it so it's not an al qaeda recruiting tool. the defense department believes a trial in the federal court system is preferably to a closed trial in the military commission and that the cia operatives leading the fight against these guys in yemen, in somalia and in afghanistan and else where also believe that if you did it in a closed setting in a military commission, it would be a powerful recruiting trool. if general petraeus and others say do it in court, why do you say that's a bad idea? >> i simply disagree and so do the american people. look, guantanamo was not there before they started attacking us in the '90s before they attacked us on 9/11. osama bin laden didn't mentioned guantanamo in his last video. what we

. there is no clause in the constitution that says president obama can delegate the defense of america to a yemeni dictator. >> before we leave this morning i have to ask you finally about the cia deaths this week. you, of course, spent 20 years at the cia and you know what a great loss this is for the agency. how does this affect both morale and strategy? as the agency expands its role. >> i think it hurts morale to a certain extent, naturally, because of the deaths, but it hurts morale even more because one of the officers who got killed had arranged an operation in 1998 that would have killed or captured osama bin laden and mr. brennan was instrumental in preventing that operation from occurring. instead he said the americans should trust the saudis to take care of bin laden. so it's a painful -- it's a painful death, but more importantly it's a death that didn't need to occur had mr. clinton -- mr. brennan, george tenet and mr. berger have the courage to defend americans. >> i wish those gentlemen were here to de fend themselves. >> i would be delighted any e time to talk to them in public on
